FTTPoD costs with fibre cable already located outside home


[link to this post]
 
Hey,

I am in a FTTC area that is not currently scheduled to get FTTP. However there is already a fibre cable and joint right outside my home and I already have an unconnected fibre cable running from my new house straight to the same pole. That would suggest to me a very reasonable price for FTTPoD, but I'd like to know more before I commit to spending £250 on a quote.

Has anyone else been in the same position?

Thanks,

They can't source the fibre from the joint outside.

Fibre will still come from the nearest Aggregation Node.

Can you clarify this - do you know who put this fibre in, and what it was for? Can you show a picture of where it joins onto the pole, and what it looks like at the house end?

If it's a ceased leased line, it won't help you. For FTTPoD they'll run a separate fibre cable back to the aggregation node.

If you have a Connectorised Block Terminal on the pole - typically with 4, 8 or 12 round caps on it - then you might be in luck; but then I wonder why you don't have FTTP available to order already.

You can go ahead and ask for a free desktop quote, before you spend the £250+VAT, but the desktop quotes do tend to be rather random.

The description sounds like FTTP is on its way to you, or should already be available. Hence people asking for a picture of what you say is the unconnected fibre cable.

Thanks for the replies. I can't get a desktop quote for some reason so £250 is the only way to go.

This what is on my pole. No sure what it's purpose is for. There is a FTTC cabinet further up the road so perhaps it's for that?

It's just a joint by the look of it. No CBT.

But the pictures of both ends of the fibre cable from your house to the pole?
